Health Talks
(By Dr. Burboro)
During the ' winter months
"colds" of the head, throat and
chest are common, and people are
wondering what is good for such a ,
trouble. ' 1
In the treatment of tonsillitis,
quinsy, bronchitis, laryngitis,
pharyngitis,, catarrh, goiter, etc.,
it is necessary to correct the cause
before any permanent relief can
be gained.
The -reason you have not been
cured heretofore is that palliative
treatment alone has been used and
the nerve disturbance responsible
for the trouble has been over
looked. Chiropractic adjustments are
successful because they restore the
nerve supply to thediseased part
and the natural repairative forces
af the body replace with healthy
and vigorous cells the waste tissue
incident to disease.

the skeptic that the Chiropractic
theory and practice) are absolutely
correct and applicable to your

some chronic complaint and have
not received satisfactory results:

AN All -Weather Tread on a
JTxL Goodyear Tire is the best
guard against winter tire troubles
man has been able to devise. It
is double -thick and densely
tough, studded with big, rugged,
sharp-edged blocks an effective
barrier to most punctures, and a
vigilant resistant to skidding. It
is as sure-footed in snow as a
malamute, and as serviceable as
your, car itself.
Every Goodyear Tire ought to be at work
outside a Goody ear Tube. No other tube
so safely insures the constant air pressure
needed to cushion strain and shock. .No
other tube is so protected in the making
against leak, seep or creep.
Goodyear Tires and Goodyear Tubes
both can be had from Goodyear Service
Station Dealers. Probably there is
one in your neighborhood. He is worth
searching out and doing-business with.
For he is there not only to sell you tires,
but to help them deliver you their last mile
of service (more than you're used to from
your present tires) after he has sold them.
